“I loved how interactive each module was. With mind maps, the card sorting tasks and then the quiz! The videos and written content was spread across each module equally which made it more interesting and easy to get though. The people that spoke were really interesting and all information given had the perfect amount of detail. Points were detailed but precise. Really great course. If I know anyone wanting to volunteer abroad I will 100% recommend this course!” Tara Crompton - Certificate in International Volunteering Student, 2017
